It was all over in a moment. We were huddled up together, and there were five men on top of me with broken bones ancyal, sorts of injuries. I tiied my best to extricate my- self, but could not do so. It wag pitch dark, and cur senses were really knocked out of us, so that I doubt very much if any of us ca-u gio an auttrtntio aceount of what d,c, occur.

T Mundle, pastor of Chelmsford Congregational Chufh. An inmate of the Winchester Workhouse has written to the master to the effect that nnie-as he is supplied with tobacco, sugar, and tea he will not remain in the "house." A woman in an a,-sai-ilt caee at Cuckfield (Sussex), being bedridden, the magistrates, the c!erk, the police, and the reporters crowded in her bedroom to hear the evidence. During restoration work at St. Peter's, Rome, the entrance was found to a new system of or.taco-.r.'bs extending unrler the whole of the Vatican and its gardens. D&eidin? that th4z law only required that matches should be given up, the Sheffield stipendiary held that a pauper who had struggled to retain possession of hie pipe when required to give it up was quite justi- fied.
FEEDING OF DOGS. I As a rule, two meals a day suffice for an a.dult do-g (says "Fancier" in "Farm and Home" A light breakfast and a good meal at ni,,ht--eKcapt,in- ,iii the cEtse of watchdogs, when the meal should be given at mid-day ard not at n.iirbt, so a-s to keep them on the alert, Thare are, however, many successful I exhibitors and breeders who feed their dog-s only once a day. We made inquiries at a larrje shew some few weeks back, arid found that a bull-dog, collie, Irish terrier, and wolfhound all of whom took first prizes, were only fed once a day (at night), and the meal consisted of law meat, varied at times with vegetables soaked in gravy or biscuits. The quai-tity of food to be given varies with the breed-, ?ize. and condition; but, as a rule, it dOJ in good health requires about oz. to Joz. of solid food per day for every pound he I weighs. Liquid foods, such as milk, gravy, Ac., are not included in this table.

r" /r- The Man in the Street. —— + —— "Some of those who watch the signs of tHe times in all sorts ef likely unlikely places are wondering if the theatre will finish, as it begun, in the church. St. Catherine of the gentle life may well be astonished if she is able to hear from her tomb that scenes in her 'ifo were the first dramatic performances ever given in England. They were embodied in one of the "Miracles and Mystery plays i) two centuries before Edward II. sat upon the throne, and the clergy and the sweet singers of the choir -vei-e the first performers. These early productions took place in church pre- cincts, and the recent Pageant held in the Bishop of London's grounds at Ful- ham was but a glorified development cf tile mediaeval drama. Then followed the i'-jrniaiice of similar plays in the open spaces of the towns, leading to the intro- duction of flippant scenes into scriptural niots and the withdrawal of the clergy from participation in the perform- ances. Later, the parish clerks of budding London acted in 1390 for eight successive days at Clerkenwell before the nobility and gentry. It is suggested that the performances of these worthies led to the naming of that delectable part of London—certainly the amateur actors "clerked it well." However, it would appear that the actors did not find their theatre a bed of roses. It is recorded that stage properties were of the crudest design, and the salaries \\ere most meagre. The imper- sonator of "Pilate" at Coventry received only a few shillings in recog- nition of his undoubted abilities, whilo "Herod" and his "wife" got even less. Thousands, or even hundreds, of pounds were undreamt ct, ind the gallery gods had peculiarly vulgar methods of marking their disapproval of the efforts made to please them. Cos- tumes were chosen with rude appro- priateness, but trap doors for the sudden I appearance of devils were even then in frecuent use. Drama was strikingly realistic, and gigantic ipaws were fixed up to represent the mouth of "the other place." Angels with gilded faces and white wings competed for applause with devils clothed in coarse hairy fabric, horns and tail not being forgotten. The usual theatre was on wheels, the lower part had to serve as a dressing-room, and so far as can be gathered there was no censor like the present-day official to say aye or nay to what should be pro- duced. Satan? as a low comedian, pro- vided with a bludgeon to add to the l weight of his performance, was a great favourite, and he usually "brought down the house." Indeed, the gentleman who takes the leading part in our modern production of t'he "Sorrows of Satan" is very small in his evening dress clothes compared with his prototype who stood the central, lurid figure on the stage upon wheels while the weights in the barrels beneath him were rolled to resemble terrific thunder claps and awful earthquake rumblings. He was also greatly admired when starch rattled in a wooden box testi- fied that a hailstorm was rushing round. The Flood was a play in tremendous favour because, as a rule, "Noah's" wife promoted much side-splitting laughter by insisting upon delivering a Caudle curtain lecture to her husband before she con- sented to enter the Ark. This scene usually culminated in "Noah" soundly smacking his better half when she had at last embarked. It would almost seem that "Mrs. Noah" was the ancestress of the long-suffering "Judy," who, if rumour be true, is shortly to enjoy another period of popularity with her comical partner, ".Atr. Punch." This sort of thing is well calculated to make Mr. Bernard Sliav and other playwrights envious, and it is -lot surprising to know that they would like to get rid of their hereditary foe, the censor. Have we too many coins? Of course not. We can all do with heavy pockets- ful of them, and bear the burden cheer- fully. But I mean in the other sense. Threepenny-bits may be popular little discs with people who don't like putting a halfpenny in the bag on Sundays and cannot afford a sixpence. However, most of us are only too glad to seize the first opportunity of getting rid of ilie tiny coin when it comes our way, even to the purchase of something we do not want. The threepenny-bit might very well be called in, and few would mourn its disappearance. The florin and half- crown are too much like twin brothers to be really popular, especially among those who find it difficult to dis- criminate between the two. The crown is too big and cumbersome, as well as the double florin. Only bakers and drapers I have any use for the farthing, and he latter mostly save themselves the worry of handling this humble coin by making pin or needle packets do duty for the widow's mite. By all means let us abolish these coins, and may the Mint Master give us a plenitude of pence, shillings, and sovereigns! There are ups and down in more senses than one for those who- would vie with the birds for the mastery of the air. We have unly just finished congratulating Monsieur Bleriot on crossing the Channel, and now we have the news that his best aeroplane-after turning a somersault and knocking half-a-dozen people down—has been smashed. It would seem that he was lucky-as well as some of the spectators—in getting off with a whole skinful of unbroken bones. Apparently, when flying get more common and airships are used by suburb- anites to go up to business aeroplane accidents are to provide us with one of the liveliest columns in our daily press. In complete contrast to his colleague's misfortunes, Monsieur Latham succeeded in establishing a world's record in a flight of 961 miles at the average speed of 43 miles an hour. This comes as some compensation for his failure at the Channel trip, and the accomplishment points tp the early use of the monoplane for practical purposes, and apparently the day is not far distant when a million- aire,. landing at Fishguard, will find his airship waiting at the harbour to convey him to his country residence or his town office, as required. Truly, these aie moving times.
CHAIN SNAPS: HITCHER KILLED At noon to-day Police-sergeant George, of Pontyberem, reported to Coroner P. W. Nicholas, Carmarthen, a fatal accident at Coalbrook Colliery, Pontyberem. It appears that at 12.30 o'clock yesterday afternoon William John Daniel, 5. Wheel-road, Ponty- berem, was on an incline of the colliery, where he was employed as a hitoher, when a link of a cable chain of an empty tram snapped. The tram left the line in its down- ward course; and brought down some timber, which caused a fall of some ten tone of rubbish, under which Daniel was buried. It occupied forty minutes to extricate him, and, as it was believed there was a slight pulsa- tion, artificial respiration was resorted to for quite an hour. at the expiration of which time Dr. M'Clelland arrived on the scene and pronounced life to be extinct.
HUNT FOR TREASURE. The result obtained in the latest search for the treasure which went down with the Spanish Armada. galleon Florencia in Tober- mory Bay ts &0 enoowraffing that a London s> ndioate has been formed to prosecute the operations.

Taff Fusion Bill COUNSEL'S TABLE DESERTED. I The Taff Railway Company's Bill was before Sir George Doughty's Committee of the House of Commons again to-day. It was understood that the business would be merely to consider some unopposed oLauees in the Taff Bill. The Committee's decision disposed of the fusion scheme so far as what was known ats the Taff-Bute Bill was concerned, o€c ides which the promoters had decided to abandon the Taff-Ithymney fusion scheme. All the members of the Committee were pre- sent, but the ta-ble set apart for counsel was deserted. Mr. Ilonoratus Lloyd, K.C, who had it aJl to himself, briefly stated that the promoters had decided not to proceed with the Taff- li-hymney Bill. There were one or two clauses in the other Bill which they desired to pro- ceed with. The first was Clause 33, which, ■provided for the consolidation of preference stocks and the issue of £ 500,000 new capital. Jlr. W. E. M. Bennett, chief accountant, gave formal evidence. The other clauses dealt with powers to construct short spurs to the company's line. Two were just above Pontypridd. At the time the powers were granted, it was thought that the coalfield would be developed in that district, but the pits—the Universal—were opened on the other side of the hill. There now appeared same reason for proceeding with the work, and the company attked for an extension. Other proposed extensions were in Llandaff. There was no op, and Mr. G. T. Sibbering, engineer to the Taff Vale Railway, having given evidence, the clauses were passed.
MINERS' EIGHT HOURS I The Home Secretary received a deputation from the executive committee of the Miners' Federation of Great Britain at the House of I Commons yesterday with regard to certain difficulties which have arisen in connection with the Miners' Eight Hours Act. Mr. Enoch Edwards, M.P., introducing the deputation, stated that the difficulties which bad arisen were generally in regard to the in.terpreta,tion and definition of terms, add- ing that these difficulties had given rise to a great deal of uneasiness. It was because they sought to obviate strikes and stoppages that they had desired to interview Mr. Glad- stone. Mr. Gladstone expressed his pleasure at hearing that there was an attempt being made by all concerned to work the Act fairly. As to the question of hours, he said, men must not be asked to work more than 9J hours in (me shift. There had been many men who had, perhaps, tried to get more out of the Act than they were entitled to. The overtime clause was put in as an ordinary overtime provision, and the 60 hours' clause was not intended to increase the number of hours worked at all times, but at times of pressure due to an increased demand.
DEBTORS IMPRISONED I The county-courts return, which was issued yesterday as a Plue-book, shows that during last year 9,141 persons were imprisoned for debt on county-court warrants. Between 1873 and 1902 the number never rose to 9,000. varying from 6,597 in 1870 to 6,856 in 1880, 6,443 in 180.0, and 7.890 in 1900. Then came a rise:- 1902 9,504 1903 10,5?.,[ 190-1- 11,086 1905 11,405 1906 11,986 At this time an outcry against imprison- ment for d-bt arose, and in 1937 the number of imprisored debtors fell to 9,214. Laat yea.r there w,a-s another small fall. The enormous amount of business trans- acted in the county-courts in a year is shown by the following figures for 1908:— Plaints entered (not above £20). 1,288,872 I'hiints entered (between £ 20 and £ 50) 13,207 Plaints entered (between £ 50 and £ 100) 2,560 Plaints entered labove £100, by agree- ment; 536 Actions determined with jur) eu Actions determined without jury i 669,239 Judgments for plaintiff on hearing 43,?,052 Judgments by ?,,?ise?t or admis?ioi.. 3H,U3 Juclgmellt by default. 86,550 Nonsuited 1,605 Judgments for defendant. 7,443 Judgment summonses 372,983 Warrants of columitlllent 138,626 Debtors imprisotied 9,141 Amount for which plaints entered £ 3,878,220 Amount received to credit of suitors.. A;2,515,253 The number of plaints entered (under L20) —1,288,872—was the largvst or rec-ord, with the exception of 1904, when there were 1,324,591.
STRUGGLE ON THE LINE I John Powell, collier, Maesycwmmer, was summoned at Blackwood to-day for assault- ing David Gwrillym, an employee of the Brecon and Merthyr Railway Company, on August 21. Mr. Lyndon Cooper, Newport, prosecuted, and Mr. A. E. S. Thomas, Peiv gam, defended.

Defendant refused to go and struck him a violent blow on the head with a water jack, which he was carrying, inflioti-ng a nasty wound. A scuffle ensued on the six-foot way, and prosecutor got de- fendant off the line shortly before a train came up. Defendant stated that he had per- mission to walk up the railway to fetch drinking water, and complainant ordered him to go back. He took no notice of him, but walked on up the line, and complainant followed him, caught hold of him by the collar, and struck him several, blows on the head with his fist. A scuffle followed, and in order to free himself from Gwillym he struck him on the head with the waterjack. The bench dismissed the case.

"Become a Lai Dhingra"] LETTER OF A MAN WHO WANTED WORK If you are going to play the part of a Curzon-Wyllic I may become a Lal Dhingra, and probably excel .him, just because you will not let me work," wrote Charlee James, a labourer, to Harry Smith Wainwright, a locomotive and wagon superintendent of the S.E. and C.R. James, who was charged at the London Sessions yesterday with threatening to kill Wainwright, was in the employ of the rail- way company at the Rotherhithe carriage department in 1907.

NEVER TOO LATE TO MEND" A pleasant surprise was s.prung on the Newport Court to-day when Patrick Ryan, popularly known as Bull Ryan," again appeared oharged with being drunk and dis- orderly in Dock-street. The Clerk: This man was seen carrying a workman's basiket? (Laughter.) Police-constable Cullimore: Y. sir. T,h.o Clerk: This is a most extraordinary thing. Superintendent Brooks: Yes, he has never been linow-n to carry such a thing before. (Renewed laughter.) Ryan: I have got work to go to in Herefordshire on a. farm.

He wanted to send her children away to school, and when hhe asked where they were going the father jumped up and said he would curse her. When about to do 60, in his anger I he broke hie umbml,la.- Mr. Okier: Let him curse you; it won't hurt you, spiritually, if he has cursed you, which I very much doubt it won't have any effect. If there is any difficulty about the children you must go to the High Court, and, with, regard to the dfcor, you must bring an action for damages, as I oan't say it is wilful damage.

Edgar, 7, Princess-gate, London, and it was occupied at the time of the misadventure by Mr. and Mrs. Edgar and the chauffeur, Charles Shurn, who was driving. They had come from Newport, and whilst proceeding on their way to Swansea- at a very flow pace along Betheeda-street, a gart coming in the opposite direction pulled one side to give them a clear road. Just then they felt a bump, and, the car being stopped at once for examination, they found that the boy had been run over, the supposition being that the boy had been hanging on to the back of the, cart, and had I)al,len.in front of t-he car, booaule the chauffeur did not see him before the accident occurred.

She put her hand in his pocket, and suddenly exclaimed, "I've got it now, you," and she ran away. Then he discovered the loss. The half-bottle of whisky (produced) was his, and he did not give it to her. A young lady residing in Broadway stated that she saw the prisoner running along the street last night. She had her hand under her coat. Police-constable John Young arrested the prisoner at her parents' house in Nora-street. She then remarked, "I think you have made a mistake.

There was a window-cleaner with a cart conta.ining ladders in ft-ont. and the defendant drove into this, knocking the ladders all over the road. The horse then ran on to the pavement, narrowly missing some children. Witness jumped at the animal's head, and then found that the defendant was drunk. He refused to come out of the oart, but with the assistance of a civilian he was pulled out, and he then kicked witness on the calf of the leg. Defen- dant I am sorry. I had a little drop too much to drink. I don't remember any of it. The stipendiary having ascertained that it was defendant's own turn-out" fined him £ 10 and costs, or two months' hard labour for the assault.
BESIEGED PRESIDENT. President Taft is enjoying even less privacy than Mr Roosveldt was wont to have at his summer residence at Oyster Bay, for since the President has gone to Beverly his retreat has not only been invaded by cranks and political aspirants, but almost every poli- tical, social, fraternal, or other organisation within a radius of 100 miles has planned to give a picnic or some kind of function, with the President aE central figure. Dozens of ministers have requested his prœence at church sociables," as they have a small church mortgage" to pay off, and Mr. Taft's attendance would help matter's cut nicely." Mr. Taft has made it a rule to refuse all such invitations, and his secre- taries are kept busy writing or giving refusals.
SHOCKING LECKWITH ACCIDENT An unfortunate shooting accident occurred at Leekwith last evening.

I. Government Scheme NEW ROADS FOR MOTOR-CARS Mr. Lloyd George yesterday formally intro- duced into the House of Commons a Bill "to promote the economio development of the' United Kingdom and the improvement of the roads therein." This is the measure which is to redeem the Budget promise of improved roads for motor traffic. The Chancellor of the Exchequer made no speech in introduc- ing it, but a memorandum, which w-a.s circulated amongst members, and the text of which is given below, shows that its main proposals are these: 1. The Treasury may take grants and loans for forestry, agriculture, rural indus- tries, the construction of harbours and canals, the development of fisheries, and for otherwise promoting the economic develop- ment of the country. 2. A Road Board of about five members is constituted for improving the facilities for motor traffic. The Board may make new roads, or make grants to local authorities to enable them to do this, or to improve existing roads. New roads so made will be primarily con- fined to motors, and there will be no speed limit. If other traffic is allowed to use such roads, a charge may be imposed. Part of the revenue of the Road Board is provided by the duties on motor-spirit and motor-car licences. Further revenue is obtained by allowing the Boa-rd to acquire land in rural districts on either side of the new roads, and to reap the increment in value. Limitation of Loans The text of the Development and Road Improvement Funds Bill, introduced in the House of Commons yesterday by the Chancellor of the Exchequer, was issued to-day. The measure consists of seventeen clauses and schedule, and follows the lines of the explanatory memorandum issued last night. Clause eleven, however, limjts the borrowing powers of the proposed Road Board, so that the amount required for the re-paying of the capital and interest on loans shall not exceed any year £ 200,000.

Mrs. Game was called, but the defendant com- menced to prompt her as to dates. Mr. Baggullay: I am asking the witness ques- tions. If you interrupt me again I shall adjourn the case for ft week. You will be locked up for that time if you are not care- ful, as I shall refuse bail. The Magistarte said the defendant had worked the pony between August 7 and 14, notwithstanding he knew that a summons was pending for cruelty to .it on the former date. He now fined him 15 and 23s. costs.

The Applicant: Next Tuesday. The Magistrate: And you have nothing? The Applicant: Only the donkey. The Magistrate: You had better go to the parochial authorities for assistance.
